The majority of Hmong Bua are animists. In recent years the Hmong Bua in Jinping may have benefited from the Christian "radio revival" among the neighboring Hmong Daw, who speak a similar language. As many as 20,000 of the neighboring Hmong Daw people have turned to Christ in southern Yunnan since 1994, due to Gospel radio broadcasts. The Hmong Bua are able to understand most of the Hmong Daw language and have probably been affected also.
A low level of literacy will be an obstacle if the Gospel is presented only in written form.
The Gospel presented in oral forms is appropriate, including radio, Gospel recordings, films, and storytellers onsite.
Pray the followers of Christ among the Hmong Bua will fellowship together, growing in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Pray they lead holy lives, and are zealous in their commitment to Christ.
* Pray the Hmong Bua will indeed profit from the Gospel radio programs directed toward the neighboring Hmong Daw community. Pray they will listen and understand.
'Again he says, "Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people." And again, "Praise the Lord all you Gentiles, And let all the peoples praise Him." Romans 15:10-11
